In the edge of the desert; Bikaner and Jaisalmer

↑Suddenly, a cloud of dust turned the clear sky above the Thar Desert into a yellowish, brownish thick fog. Then came the diluvian rain… My group and I run to our jeep and drive back at high speed to Jaisalmer, as the rain was turning the desert into a lake.

  1. I love the desert. It reminds me of my childhood as well as the book Wind, Sand, and Stars.

    That’s right, Abu. That was in 2006. It didn’t rain properly for 15 years (so they have told me), so the people of Jaisalmer were somehow happy with it all. The water invaded the city, cutting it in half. Nobody could pass from one half to the other. I myself was on the wrong side of my hotel and had to find another place to sleep that night.
